Dear Friend of FootJoy,
Summer has arrived and we hope you enjoy your golf. When you hear from us at FootJoy, we often tell you about exciting new products and contests, or ask you to celebrate major victories from the thousands of Tour Professionals who trust FootJoy products every week. Whilst we will continue to keep you informed on the product and Tour fronts, we're going to mix things up a bit.
It is with great pleasure that we introduce you to one of your fellow FootJoy enthusiasts, Mr. Michael O'Toole. Mike is not a Golf Professional, nor does he have aspirations to make golf his profession. Mike is an avid golfer, a 34-year old, six handicap who wrote us a very inspiring letter about his passion for traveling to Ireland and playing golf on the Emerald Isle. Mike recently departed for a TEN week, FIFTY-SIX round golfing trip along the coast of Ireland. FootJoy is getting involved by supporting Mike with all the necessary gear to keep him dry and comfortable: DryJoys golf shoes , DryJoys Performance Rainwear , RainGrip Gloves , Umbrellas, etc. Ireland can obviously offer some challenging weather conditions, so Mike reached out for assistance from the leader in waterproofing!
In return for some great performance products, Mike will share with us several blog entries, entitled "O'Tooles of the Trade", which will cover such topics as:
* Some of the great golf courses he has played
* Tips on how to prepare for Irish weather!
* Inspirations for this 10-week trip
* Some of the lesser-known, but amazing places to play
* How he sold his wife on this 10-week trip!
* Great stories from long-time Irish Caddies
* Travel tips and/or unusual stories from various Pubs/B&Bs.
